Netlify CLI can not deploy extremely large site

Hello, I’m trying to migrate one of my websites to hugo. It has around 250k files in it. I’m stuck at the deployment phase. Locally I get this error:

Meanwhile any recommendation is welcome. I just have way too many posts (+130k) and each post has a data json with itself. Maybe I can embed json data directly to posts md files directly instead of using GetJSON.

  • we need to know your netlify site name. Example: stupefied-carson-b343df.netlify.app

This thread should help: Hugo is killed when building

Thanks for the reply. As it was suggested, I built the site in my local machine (took around 6h) and then I ran netlify deploy from netlify CLI to push public directory of hugo site. I received this:

netlify deploy

? Publish directory fe_hugo/public

Can you see what is wrong with the setup? Is it the sheer size of the website?

Based on this error, and given you have almost 600,000 files, I would say yes.

Unfortunately I do not think Netlify CLI can deploy this large of a site. You are going to have to look into other ways like through Github/Gitlab.

There is perhaps a good use-case here for On-demand Builders (docs).
